A Crowdfunded Plan for a 3D Printer in Every School
Makerbot has a plan to use crowdfunding to get a 3D printer into every school.
3D Printing is taking off. However, while 3D Printers have gradually been coming down in price, they are still cost prohibitive for most school (and school systems). With Makerbot’s Crowdfunding initiative, perhaps this may change.
3D Printing can be used in wide range of areas within schools. Teachers and Students in just about any subject area can find clever ways to use 3D printed models in the classroom. If you are interested in applying for a crowdfunded 3D printer, check out Makerbot’s link on donorchoose.org.
